    Re: Is there really racism against white people in USA ?

    Of course there is. Just as there is racism against blacks, reds, yellows, and browns.

    There is white on black racism. There is white on brown racism. There is white on yellow racism. There is white on white on red racism.

    There is black on white racism. There is black on brown racism. There is black on yellow racism. There is black on red racism.

    There is brown on white racism. There is brown on black racism. There is brown on yellow racism. There is brown on red racism.

    There is yellow on white racism. There is yellow on black racism. There is yellow on brown racism. There is yellow on red racism.

    There is red on white racism. There is red on black racism. There is red on brown racism. There is red on yellow racism.

    The point is that racism is not exclusive to whites. Whites did not invent racism. Indeed racism was actually around LONG before there were even whites in the world.

    You see, despite the push to change the definition of racism there really is only one definition of racism. That of thinking that your race is superior to that of another race. All this bull crap lately of "its only actual racism when X race has more power than Y race" is just that, bull crap. Racism doesn't have to have power to exist. It just simply exists. Yes, those in power are more able to express their racism in more substantial ways. That does not mean that their racism is any more or less tolerant than those who are not in power. Because everyone knows damn well that if those that are in power, lose power, those that gain power can do, and more than likely will do, the same exact things to express their racism that those previously in power did. And those that lost power will still feel the same racism that they had before they lost power.

    And I'd bet dollar to donuts that when whites lose power in the US, (and you know that they will simple due to evolutionary and biological laws) the same people stating that "its only actual racism when X race has more power than Y race" will quickly change their tune and will conveniently "forget" that they said such.

    Whites don't suffer from systemic racism.

    But it possible for a white man or woman to get their feelings hurt if someone tells them they don't like them because they are white in which case that would be racism as well - but it would be powerless. Hearing that might ruffle their feathers. Make a sensitive fella' cry.

    But seeing that Caucasians currently far outnumber every other race - I doubt it will effect them that much.

    If white Americans become the minority in this country racism towards them could become systemic. So it has potential for becoming an issue for them.

    Re: Is there really racism against white people in USA ?

    Nope the definition of the word racism doesnt mention that the 'race with power are the only race that can be racist' .


    rac·ism

    noun
    the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
    prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

    The county and town that I live in is dominated by politicians and business owners that are Hispanic. So accordingly European American's cant be racist in this area bwhahaha.

    Try thinking locally not nationally or internationally. There are plenty of places in the world that so called whites are a minority.

    This is a good point. There can be prejudice against anyone. Some people hate white people. But discrimination is when society enforces or supports that prejudice, and that doesn't happen to whites. I answered the poll "no" because discrimination is what matters, not prejudice.

    If the scenario you describe comes true, then it would be a more powerful race oppressing a less powerful one. That would not be changing one's tune at all, but rather being consistent.

    I think it will take a lot more than being a minority population. An economic minority, yes, but not merely a population one.

    Are you on that "black people have no power" bandwagon?

    Um, yeah. News flash: there are people who don't like white people because of their race, yes.
